University of Iowa Dance Marathon 100 Days Out Celebration

On October 28th, the University of Iowa Dance Marathon will be hosting their annual 100 days out celebration. All of the day’s events will be taking place on in the second floor ballroom of the Iowa Memorial Union. The first being a Halloween party from 12-4pm, followed by a guest lecturer at 7pm.

The Event Committee of UIDM will organize the entire celebration. Sawyer Small, the Event Director of DM22 had this to say about this year’s 100 Days Out, “Dance Marathon 22's 100 Days Out celebration is an awareness event for both leadership and dancers to recognize and get excited about the DM22 Big Event approaching, while celebrating the progress we have made so far. Compared to previous years, this year's event is split into two halves: an interactive Halloween-themed party and an inspirational lecture from our national director. We are seeking to provide a variety of activities for dancers to get more involved in helping our kiddos and to feel a part of the DM movement. Our goal is for all members of DM to take the time to relax and celebrate all that we have done and all that we are going to do in the last 100 Days."

The event will kick-off with a Halloween themed party (all those in attendance are encouraged to dress up). For those who choose to dress up there will be a costume photo-booth available. In the backdrop of the event, classic Disney channel movies, Halloween Town and Hocus Pocus, will be playing. Being that the event is during lunch time it’s not a bad idea to come hungry and make sure to bring your sweet tooth. DP dough for the second consecutive year, will be sponsoring the event by donating more than 200 calzones! There will also be popcorn and cotton candy machines along with substantial amounts of candy.

Starting at 7pm, a featured guest lecturer from Children’s Miracle Network will present. Dance Marathon is fortunate to announce the Head of Youth Marketing and Dance Marathon, Zac Johnson as the guest lecturer. For the duration of the lecture Johnson will discuss his life stories and how those evolved into his life with Dance Marathon on a national spectrum. This lecture will count as a Greek Educational.
